They also noted that at the moment, West fully owns the company and creative control over it. The publication also estimated the upcoming collaboration between Yeezy and the GAP brand at approximately 970 million. According to experts, it should bring $ 150 million in profit in 2022.
The remainder of the rapper’s fortune comes from cash and stocks ($ 122 million), as well as a music catalogue ($ 110 million) and other investments ($ 1.7 billion), including profits from his ex-wife’s SKIMS brand, TV star Kim Kardashian.
